Many practicing draughtsman or designers experience difficulties in drawing engineering components due to their lack of knowledge of engineering processes. In this course we endeavor to give him the fundamental understanding of the production and manufacturing processes in industry. It also includes the usage of materials and machinery in its application to manufacturing.
The program starts from first principles and it is required that persons with a mathematical background will have an added advantage to study the program. At least some exposure to high school level education is required to be able to successfully complete the program.
The usual application procedures must be observed. There are no other needs except that students should have access to a computer and they will be required to be computer literate at least capable to use a computer to be able to send and receive mail and to open attachment as well as using application software to open textbooks, prepare assignments.
